Here it is, the oldest covered wooden bridge in Europe getting ready for the Carnival in Lucerne. It is an important tradition for the city, which hosts famous parades that attract tourists from all corners of the country. However, Carnival is a holiday also celebrated in the other Catholic Swiss cantons (Schwitz, Wallis, Zug, Fribourg, Solothurn, Ticino and Appenzell Innerhoden). The Carnival period normally ends on Mardi Gras, that is 40 days before Easter. What about you, are ready to celebrate?
